Emagic was a music software and hardware company based in Rellingen, Germany. On July 1, 2002 Emagic was bought by Apple Computer. Emagic's Windows-based product offerings were discontinued on September 30, 2002.

The company is best known for its music sequencer, Logic. Logic stemmed from the then famous Creator, then Notator, made by C-Lab (the company's forerunner) for the Atari platform. In 1992 Notator Logic was launched for Atari and Macintosh, followed by a version for Windows. The "Notator" was dropped from the name and the product became known under the name "Emagic Logic". Now that Apple has bought Emagic, Logic has had "Emagic" dropped from the title, and is now called Logic Pro (with a cut-down version called Logic Express).

Logic is currently on version 7.2 and is compatible with Intel Macs.

The other major software product that Emagic offered was SoundDiver, a sound editor which could be adapted for several different hardware synthesizers. While there was a beta version for Mac OS X, production on SoundDiver appears to have been discontinued.

Emagic formerly offered a line of audio interface hardware, the Audiowerk PCI cards as well as USB units. A potential post-acquisition successor to these products, the unreleased Asteroid FireWire interface, was the subject of the Apple v. Does trade secret litigation.
